The first commitment for Georgia in the 2019 class is a monster one.

Ashton Hagans, a top-15 national recruit, pledged to Mark Fox’s program Thursday, years after the Bulldogs offered him as an eighth-grader.

“A couple of days ago, I felt like that was the best decision for me to go with,” Hagans told 247Sports. “We had a conversation over and over and we would go to games and sit down and see how I could help them out. We just kept talking and kept talking. I had a couple of talks with my coaches.

“That opened my eyes.”

Hagans, a 6-foot-4 point guard who hails from Covington, Ga., chose the Bulldogs over in-state contender Georgia Tech. He also held offers from the likes of North Carolina and Kansas.
